Jack and Beatrice Glotzer papers
The Jack and Beatrice Glotzer papers consist of biographical materials, a memoir, photographs, and a postcard documenting Jack Glotzer’s family in pre‐war and wartime Rohatyn and Jack and Beatrice Glotzer’s immigration to the United States in 1949.
Biographical materials include the meal card Beatrice Glotzer used during her passage to the United States, an International Refugee Organization medical tag issued to her when the ship reached Boston Harbor, and two report cards issued to Edmund Glotzer in 1938 and 1939.
Jack Glotzer’s memoir, I Survived the German Holocaust Against All Odds: A Unique and Unforgettable Story of a Struggle for Life, describes his childhood in Rohatyn, Russian occupation, German occupation, Gestapo Actions, survival hiding in the woods, liberation by the Red Army, military service in the Red Army, return to Rohatyn, postwar life in Schlachtensee and Bayreuth, and immigration to the United States.
Photographs depict Jack Glotzer’s family in Poland, Edmond Glotzer with his classmates, Jack Glotzer’s aunt Malke Altman and her family in Poland, his uncle Wilhelm Rapaport during World War I, and Beatrice Glotzer aboard the ship that brought her to the United States.
The postcard was written by Toni Glotzer in Rohatyn before the ghetto to her husband in New York and mentions his inability to help her and their sons.
